--- Comment #3 from Tim Mills <tim@cbcl.co.uk> ---
I'm unhappy that

map(k, Vm) 

is not a subtype of 

function(xs:anyAtomicType) as Vf, where Vm is a subtype of Vf.

and that


is not a subtype of

function(xs:integer) as Vf, where Vm is a subtype of Vf.

This stems from the text

"The function signature of the map, treated as a function, is always
function(xs:anyAtomicType) as item()*, regardless of the actual types of the
keys and values in the map. This means that a function item type with a more
specific return type, such as function(xs:anyAtomicType) as xs:integer, does
not match a map in the sense required to satisfy the instance of operator.
However, the rules for function coercion mean that any map can be supplied as a
value in a context where such a type is the required type, and a type error
will only occur if an actual call on the map (treated as a function) returns a
value that is not an instance of the required return type."

This appears to prevent a processor from using static type analysis to avoid
unnecessary function coercion.  For example, I think this requires that

function() { 1 } instance of function() as xs:integer

returns false.
